Gaia @ The Painted Hall...

On Sunday night David sorted tickets for Jason, Carlo and I to go and see something rather special.

The Painted Hall in Greenwich is a Baroque masterpiece known as Britain's 'Sistine Chapel'. The Hall boasts one of the most spectacular Baroque interiors in Europe. The incredible ceiling and wall decorations were conceived and executed by British artist Sir James Thornhill.

Currently gilding this particular lily is Gaia - a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. Measuring seven metres in diameter, Gaia features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the Earth’s surface. The artwork provides the opportunity to see our planet floating in three-dimensions high up in this magnificent Hall.

And it is amazing.
